One of the most prestigious programs for Civil Air Patrol cadets is the IACE (International Air Cadet Exchange) Program. One of Minuteman's own cadets was accepted in the IACE Program to go to Canada. For two and a half weeks, Lt. Colonel Tony Verardo traveled around the Atlantic coast of Canada with other air cadets from Canada, Australia, China, France, England, and other countries. Lt Colonel Verardo traveled throughout the French-speaking regions of New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia to visit local air bases and various local officials, as well as major sites in the area including Peggy's Cove and naval destroyers.


Verardo found the host family stays particularly interested him because it allowed him to experience another culture and another family. Having never been out of the United States, Verardo found the entire experience fascinating and looks forward to continuing his travels. Here's to the first of many stamps in Lt. Colonel Verardo's passport!
